    Do the iphone contributors get to share in those planet achievements and that ending?

    And it is also possibly the largest sausagefest in gaming history.

    Apparently the hang on startup is a known bug triggered by too many songs on the iphone…

    I loved this game the first five minutes I played it, but then I exited the app to turn on location services to use the gps functionality. I haven’t been able to play it since, as it hangs on the loading screen and crashes every time. I’ve tried everything up to removing and reloading all my apps.

    Please fix this Namco! Why won’t you let me play with this wonderful toy?

    Whoa! That map threw me off!
    I live around there and was confused for a second.

    On topic: I don’t understand how the GPS we need to keep it open? It’s not sensing my location when i moved when I turn it off…

    regardless, its an interesting time sink

    Anon, where did you hear that?

    I have the crash on startup too.

    Ok, so I just bought the game on my iPhone and tried it out.

    …i have NO clue what Im doing!

    The little fairy guy thats supposed to tell you tips and stuff is pretty much useless. What am I supposed to do with the little guy? All I can figure out how to do is just ‘fling’ him around to make him stretch. (Not counting the gps features – have to wait for lunch to try that…)

    Maybe the rate of purchases for this title has more to do with the Sony store on the PS3 than with the game itself. I am a very occasional game player (I bought the PS3 for the media playback capabilities) but I have looked for Noby Noby Boy on the few times I’ve browsed the store in the machine – no luck, can’t find it.

    I really wanted to like this game, but… it sucks on the iphone. I’ve read reviews for the PS3 version, and it seems a lot less solitary.

    Psst….hey, Keita-san! There are more PC users than iPhone and PS3 owners combined. Just saying…

    Simply did not get what was supposed to be interesting/ fun about the game. Many people feel likewise i suppose. I think he was banking on there being more players than were actually interested in playing it.
